As we have mentioned on one occasion, the last distro who managed to be part of the Ubuntu family was Ubuntu MAT, returning to the Canonical operating system the graphical environment he used until the arrival of Unity. But the Ubuntu family continues to grow and in October, if there are no surprises, a new component will arrive: Ubuntu Budgie, Which is currently called Budgie Remix 16.04. The bad thing about the current version is that they failed to arrive on April 21, so it is neither official taste nor has support for several years.
Having explained this, we must comment on some of the news that will come to Ubuntu Budgie 16.10, such as the system boot image. So far, the image we could see at the start Budgie Remix it showed the system logo with a textured background (which I don’t remember right now). Since the new update, which is also available for Budgie Remix 16.04, the image has been simplified and shows a background all the same color.
Budgie Remix adds changes with a view to Ubuntu Budgie 16.10
As part of the improvements to our visual brand, image and sensations, HEXcube has released a proposal to replace our Plymouth display. The system home screen is an element that can condition the first impression of a new user.
And is that, as I write this post, it is literally impossible for me to stop thinking about the image that shows Ubuntu MAT when it is booting the system: just give it an intro to enter the system (I have dualboot), I see a square black covering the initial options and yes, it gives a very bad impression.
On the other hand (and that Ubuntu MAT has always been good), Ubuntu Budgie will include a welcome screen which will offer us options, such as reading about the system or the ability to download software. But to see this welcome screen we still have to wait for Budgie Remix 16.04.1 or version 16.10, as we say, everything indicates that it will become Ubuntu Budgie.
When I tried it, Budgie Remix made a very good impression on me, so much so that I will try it again in October to see if I decide to install it as a native system. The downside is that it doesn’t allow me to create pitchers on the top bar, but it’s all about getting used to it. Have you tried Budgie Remix? What do you think?
